clocksThis weekend signified the ending of Daylight Saving Time, so I hope you are all feeling a little more refreshed this Monday morning! Daylight Saving Time is observed by about 70 countries worldwide, and most of the states in the U.S. besides Arizona, Hawaii, and several of the dependent territories.

This controversial topic began around the 1900s, and was popularized by Germany and Austria. The purpose was meant to help make better use of daylight, by turning the clocks in the summer months to move an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening. Daylight Saving Time begins by changing the clocks forward on the second Sunday in March, and by turning them backward on the first Sunday of November.

I hope you all enjoyed your extra hour of sleep, and hopefully you can use that to find the motivation to keep working hard this semester. Keep up the good work, Sabres!
